Bags and a Quilters Keepsake Journal.

Here are some things I am about to put in my Etsy Shop. ( I couldn't quite figure out have to go to paypal direct.)

I like to recycle and these little bags make perfect use of a Dinner jacket.
This one is made from one front lapel, it has a spotty interior and two black handles.

The second one is made from a sleeve with a button to close inside.

I have just finished a Quilters Keepsake Journal, it measures approx 6.5"X 7.5"
Here's the front cover with the Quilter sitting with her quilting by the fire.

A pocket for her quilt labels and some quilting folklaw.
A pocket with some ribbon and lace.
And lastly a pocket for her notebook and a needlecase.

This is the back cover.

I hope you like these bits and pieces, if you do pop over to my Etsy shop and take a peek.

I'm back to the making, I love it!!

Hello Angela
This Quilter's Journal is exquisite.
Your carefully chosen fabrics give it the feel of a precious heirloom that has been handed down from a grandmere to her granddaughter.
The pockets are filled with treasures and a story to tell!
A beautiful piece!
Take care

Winter and cold weather are coming.
I never do the hill in Totnes in bad weather....
Never try to do it in good weather if I can help.
Going to have to be you and me and coffee at the top of the hill soon :-)
